Protect Yourself from Holiday Hazards
You’ve been counting down since January. You’ve been eating your body weight in lettuce and endured weekly HIIT classes. But now it’s arrived: your summer holiday is finally here! High on most people’s list of best things to do on holiday are eating, partying, sunbathing and relaxing. What can often be forgotten in the warmth of sunnier climates is everyday oral hygiene habits that can lead to embarrassing odours!
These travel tips have been compiled by UltraDEX to ensure you’re not held back by holiday hazards:
Bad breath protection: You’ll feel much better if your mouth feels fresh before you get off the plane. So make sure you have UltraDEX Fresh Breath Oral Spray with you for on-the-go freshness. Holidays are riddled with bad breath triggers: garlic, coffee, onions, alcohol and spicy foods to name just a few. Travel size UltraDEX Daily Oral Rinse is a must-have to ensure healthy oral hygiene while abroad and the neat 100ml bottle is perfect for carry-on-luggage. The advanced iQ+ ActiveOxi Technology in UltraDEX products doesn’t just mask bad smells – it is clinically proven to inhibit the bacteria which cause unpleasant breathe odour.
Heat protection: Take a hat and wear it – in and out of the sun. If you keep it on all the time, you will never lose it. A hat will protect your hair from drying out and more importantly, stop you from getting sunstroke. The sun can be fierce and shouldn’t be underestimated.
Phone bill protection: Find out about data roaming and calls abroad. You may end up with a very large phone bill if you forget to check. To avoid any issues, turn data roaming off and rely on Wi-Fi hotspots.
Skin protection: Your skin won’t know what has hit it when you go into the hot sun having been under cover for the best part of at least 6 months so make sure you pack a high protection factor suncream – that means at least SPF 30 for use the first week. Don’t be tempted to go for lower and let sunburn ruin your holiday. A spray tan is an option if you can’t wait to have a real one but it will only last about four days and you will need to avoid swimming in chlorinated water to preserve it.
Boredom protection: Make sure you pack a music player, book or kindle to keep you entertained. Even if you’ve planned an action-packed holiday, you should always be prepared for delayed flights or late check-in times.
